MFB firefighters are currently battling a blaze at an apartment complex under construction in Bundoora.

Crews were called to the address on Zenith Rise about 2pm to find the top storeys of three apartments on fire.

Crews managed to stop the blaze from spreading to the remaining four apartments and got the fire under control within 30 minutes.

Luckily, no one was inside the complex at the time.

As the complex is under construction, finding available water and accessing the site proved challenging.

The cause is yet to be determined and firefighters expect to remain on scene for another hour.
